after reading preprocessor docs from gcc and trying some things:
We can do this. It comes at a price: the price is a blank line in the
WARN trace for the "no printk comments" case, and we lose the ability
to override the printk level. (which you can argue is a feature by just
setting it to KERN_WARNING).

(and some interesting but otherwise non-harmful preprocessor stuff in
headers)

Is this is price worth paying to not have a second macro?
